The Divinus Haruspex Association of Clairvoyants was an organisation of Seers. They granted some form of certification to individuals, possibly attesting that they genuinely possessed the gift of Sight. One known recipient of this certification was Susie Sooth.[1]

Etymology

Divinus is a Latin word meaning "divine," "superhuman," or "supernatural."[2] In the cultures of ancient Rome and Etruria, a haruspex was a man who practiced haruspicy, a form of divination that involved analysing the entrails of sacrificed animals.[3]
